What is a Dashboard? – Defining dashboards, visual analysis tools and other data presentation media by Alexander ‘Sandy’ Chiang.
From the post:
To reiterate, there are typically four types of presentation media: dashboards, visual analysis tools, scorecards, and reports. These are all visual representations of data that help people identify correlations, trends, outliers (anomalies), patterns, and business conditions. However, they all have their own unique attributes.
What do you think? Are there four for business purposes or do other domains offer more choices? If so, how would you distinguish them from those defined here?
Just curious. I can imagine flogging one of these to a business client who was choosing based on experience with these four choices. Hard to choose what you have not seen. But beyond that, say in government circles, do these hold true?
